Stormwater & Watershed Quality Management

Storm Water is the water that is produced by natural precipitation such as snow, sleet, and rain. As this water accumulates it begins to move and migrate through a process known as runoff. Storm Water Runoff moves through our environment picking up items along the way. These items can include plastic bottles, wood, sediment, and petroleum products to name a few. A Watershed is a topographical surface feature on our Planet Earth where rainfall and precipitation drain to a common location.

Management of storm water resources is governed by the Clean Water Act under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System. The City of Grapevine’s goal is to work in a cooperative teamwork spirit with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the United States Environmental Protection Agency www.epa.gov, the North Central Texas Council of Governments, as well as all county and local governments to manage storm water quality concerns as effectively as possible.
